A Crazy Idea with Distress Embossing Glaze

Have you ever had an idea, that you knew was crazy and would take forever, but just had give it a try? Well, that’s exactly what happened with the card I’m sharing in my latest. When I saw the Wheel stencil from Tim Holtz, I knew I wanted to create a rainbow of color through the stencil and I wanted to try doing it with Embossing Glaze. Once that idea was planted, I just had to give it a try even though I knew it would be a slow, time consuming process. And once I started and could see the potential, I had to keep going! In the end, it turned out to be one of my favorite cards to date!

STAMP AND SMUDGE REPEAT STAMPING MONOPRINTING

Picture the Rainbow | Tim Holtz Sizzix Vault Picture Show

When I first saw the Tim Holtz Vault Picture Show Die Set, I was SO happy! I have been wanting that View Master die for forever, but since it's retired, it's near impossible to find or afford. So now my dreams of creating with it can be fulfilled and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who will feel this way!

I also knew that I wanted to create a swatch wheel of sorts by filling in each of the openings with a different color of Distress Ink. In the end, I ended up with a rainbow of cards by doing one with each main color family. But...I also think a neutral one with all of the browns and grays would be really pretty as well!

In this post I'm going to share how I made each card. I basically used the same formula to put together  each of the cards in this set. I just switched out the colors, the dies, and the sentiments to make each one unique.

View Master Rainbow Card Set by Juliana Michaels featuring the Tim Holtz Vault Picture Show Die Set

I began by die cutting a piece of paper from the Tim Holtz Backdrops Volume 4 and a piece of white cardstock with the View Master Die and its frame piece from the Vault Picture Show Die Set. I inked the edges of the patterned paper and the white cardstock with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. You could skip the second layer of white cardstock if you want. I just liked the idea of creating a little depth and dimension by adding in the second layer behind the patterned paper.

Next, I die cut a piece of Black Kraft Stock with the frame piece. If you don't have the Black Kraft Stock you can use black cardstock. Another great option, if you love the color of the Black Kraft Stock, is to ink white cardstock with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. I did that on a couple of these cards instead of using the Kraft Stock and I bet you can't even tell which ones.

I then adhered these various layers together using liquid adhesive.

As for the sections of color on each View Master, I began by taking a strip of Distress Heavystock and applied each color to a small section using a blending brush.  I used was Distress Oxides, but you could also use Distress Inks, Paints, Watercolor Pencils, etc. I then used the small dies from the set to cut out each color. I inked the edges of each square with Scorched Timber Distress Ink and then adhered it into the opening on the View Master.

Next, I die cut Black Kraft Stock (you could also use black cardstock) three times with the film strip die from the Vault Picture Show Die Set. I trimmed off one of the openings on one strip and tore off the end on the other two strips so that they would fit on my card front. I then sanded them using a sanding disk, but you could also use find grit sand paper. If you use black cardstock, you can skip the sanding.


Red - Spun Sugar, Kitsch Flamingo, Festive Berries, Barn Door, Lumberjack Plaid, Aged Mahogany, Tattered Rose, Saltwater Taffy, Worn Lipstick, Abandoned Coral, Fired Brick, Candied Apple

Yellow - Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber, Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, Carved Pumpkin, Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Ripe Persimmon, Candied Apple, Crackling Campfire

Green - Twisted Citron, Crushed Olive, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Bundled Sage, Moved Lawn, Rustic Wilderness, Cracked Pistachio, Evergreen Bough, Lucky Clover, Pine Needles

I then die cut the embellishments from Black Kraft Stock and sanded them.  Again you can use black cardstock and skip the sanding if you like. Here are the dies I used for each card:
Red - Vault ______ Die Set
Yellow - Vault Scribbly Butterflies Die Set
Green - Vault Wildflowers Die Set
Blue - Vault Scribbly Butterflies Die Set
Purple - Vault Lovebirds Die Set

The base layer of the card is a piece of smooth white cardstock cut to 4 ¼ x 5 ½ inches that I inked heavily with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. You could also use Black Kraft Stock or black cardstock. I then took another piece of smooth white cardstock cut to 4 x 5 ¼ inches and lightly inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. The final layer is a piece of patterned paper from the Tim Holtz Backdrops Volume 5 that I cut to 3 ⅞ x  5 ⅛ inches. I also inked the edges of it with the Scorched Timber Distress Ink.

Purple View Master Rainbow Card Set by Juliana Michaels featuring the Tim Holtz Vault Picture Show Die Set


For the sentiment, I stamped an saying from the Tim Holtz Tiny Text Stamp Set onto white cardstock using Black Soot Archival Ink. I trimmed it into at strip and inked the edges with Scorched Timber Distress Ink. I then adhered it to the card with 1mm Double Sided Foam adhesive a little dimension.
